bad architecture? x86 you mean? 450mm wafer makes the cost more tolerable and x86 can better compete with ARM atleast at the low end which is now what Intel is targeting with their Africa smartphone release I guess.
Neither Smith nor CEO Paul Otellini indicated where the 450-mm development facility would be located. Intel already has two wafer fabs that have been previously labeled as being destined for 450-mm wafer production; the D1X fab in Hillsboro, Oregon and Fab 42 in Chandler, Oregon.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
